An app called Trigger now has a feature that will alert you if President Elect Donald Trump tweets about any publicly traded company, so that you can make adjustments to your portfolio accordingly.
Originally, Trigger operated as an app that would alert you to the situations you entered into the app. So if you wanted to know when a stock reached a certain price, dropped below a designated threshold, or if you wanted to be alerted when the Fed raised interest rates, the app would send an alert straight to your phone, so you can adjust your investment strategy.
President Elect Trump issuing tweets that are affecting the price of stocks could create a credible investment strategy. Remember when President-elect Trump tweeted about Boeing and the contract for Air Force One that led to a drop in the companies’ stock price.
Should President Trump continue to mention specific companies by name once he assumes the office then this information could be quite valuable to investors if acquired in a timely manner.
Here are just a few of the most recent Tweets in which Donald Trump has mentioned companies:
Toyota Motor said will build a new plant in Baja, Mexico, to build Corolla cars for U.S. NO WAY! Build plant in U.S. or pay big border tax.

Based on the tremendous cost and cost overruns of the Lockheed Martin F-35, I have asked Boeing to price-out a comparable F-18 Super Hornet!
